Over 70 students from both the Primary and Secondary divisions assembled at Bellarine Secondary College in Drysdale on Tuesday, March 21st to represent their schools in the Geelong regional Chess competition.
Christian College Geelong had 11 representatives from both our Junior and Middle School campuses. For most students, this was either their first or second tournament, with representatives as young as Year 2. The day consisted of seven 15-minute rounds throughout the day for each student.
Overall, Christian College finished 2nd in the 'Primary A' Division. Dylan Phung (Middle School) placed 1st overall in this section, with Alexis Jane (Middle School - pictured below), placing second overall and the first Female winner in this section, with John McClure (Junior School) finishing in 8th position. A wonderful achievement for these three talented students!
Special thanks to the following students for their participation on the day: John McClure, Lucinda Joyce, Mallory West, Molly O’Malley, Makaylah-Jane Townson and Jianaa Merchant (Junior School) and Dylan Phung, Alexis Jane, Harry Millichip, Tvisha Merchant and Alice Joyce (Middle School). Thank you to Mr Rowan Thurman (Junior School Chaplain) for supporting this opportunity for our students and also to the parents who assisted with transport.
